This story has everything: Jewish ancestors – who were Polish patriots fighting with Piłsudski for Polish independence, tickets for a ferry to America, kosher sausages, love, war, and the Shoah. Above all, this story also includes photographs from the Kraków Ghetto, hidden in a jar and buried on the way to the Płaszów Concentration Camp. We would like to invite you on a guided tour following the footsteps of Ryszard Ores, a Cracovian, Jew, and Holocaust Survivor, who never forgot his hometown, even after settling in the US in the post-war years.

During the tour, we will go to the places associated with Ryszard’s pre-war life and the area of the former ghetto, where Ryszard worked as a paramedic and from which his family was deported to Bełżec. We will also go to the places to which he returned after the war.
